In an interview with Empire Magazine, Marvel Studios producer Nate Moore answered a variety of questions about the Eternals. Moore said the movie takes place around the same time as Spider-Man: Far From Home, with the world recovering from Thanos’ attack and the return of half the world’s population. He will also tell you why the Ancient Ones never got involved in helping mankind.
The scenario was created to deal with this problem. We have a very specific reason why the Ancients were not involved in the conflict with Thanos.
